Times OOH has recently acquired the advertising rights of Coimbatore and Tiruchirappalli (Trichy) International Airports. The media has been strategically placed at two of Tamil Nadu's high potential domestic and international travel hubs giving brands an excellent opportunity to advertise their product portfolio and enhance customer connect.

Being the 2nd largest airport in Tamil Nadu (in terms of passenger and cargo traffic), Coimbatore has witnessed a growth of 24.4 % YOY with the passenger traffic of 2.1 Million FY17.

The advertisement rights of the airport, were acquired in the month of June 2017 for a tenure of 10+ years. Times OOH has put a total of 60 Media units by far in an area of minimum 10,558 sq. ft. to cater to 100% travelling audience in locations with high dwell time. Type of formats to be found at the airport consists of Back-lit, Digital Screens network, Scrollers, Dropdowns, FSU, Front lit hoardings, Back lit hoardings, Iconic structure, Aerobridge, Trays branding, etc.

These media units are proposed and approved by the respective Authorities, however, are expected to be installed and fully functional by November and December starting for Trichy & Coimbatore airports respectively. This allows a never-before opportunity for advertisers to target not just the itinerant Indian, but also, the NRI & global audience to get maximum brand visibility.

With a passenger traffic of 1.3 Million FY17, Trichy Airport is the 2rd largest International airport serving Tiruchirapalli (Tiruchirappalli) in the state of Tamil Nadu, India, catering to both International & Domestic passengers.

With a total area of minimum 2460 sq. feet, it is the second largest airport in international passenger traffic after Chennai and third largest in terms of total passenger traffic next to Chennai and Coimbatore.

Times OOH has put a total number of 20 substantially large media units by far at the airport, the type of media formats of which are Back-lit, Scrollers, Dropdowns, FSU, Front lit hoardings, etc. Besides, the strategic positioning of Times OOH media units is one of the USPs for advertising at the airport giving maximum exposure to brands.

Speaking of the acquisition Mr. Sharath Chandra quoted, "Bagging the advertising rights of Trichy Airport is certainly a value addition to our airport media. Being the second largest airport in the international passenger traffic, Trichy has a lot of potential for brands to leverage the visibility of global audience. We have a head on media at the main departure entrance, check-in area, etc. catering to 100% departing audience so, the scope of advertising for both- Indian and International brands is huge!"

Various brands have already started advertising and utilizing the media units of these two airports. One of which is Marriot; the brand has occupied one of the largest media units (drop down site) of 30x10 sq. ft. The brand wanted to display the launch of its newest property which is very near to the airport, Fairfield Marriot. The campaign initiated in the month of Nov 2017 for a period of 2 months.

Tiruchi airport expansion: MP’s plea to Defence Minister

Tiruchi Member of Parliament P. Kumar has appealed to Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to issue instructions for transfer of defence land for the international airport expansion project.

Mr. Kumar met the Defence Minister in New Delhi on Monday and handed over a memorandum.

The memorandum said the international airport at Tiruchi catered to the travel needs of people residing in five to six neighbouring districts. The airport was poised for expansion and further development in view of the rising passenger traffic.

The total extent of land proposed to be acquired for the expansion project was 683.32 acres out of which 345.62 acres of lands belonged to the State government.

The Chief Minister had accorded administrative sanction in early May for acquisition of the land. The remaining 337.70 acres belonged to Defence. Hence, there was a need to transfer the defence land for the project. Airports Authority of India (AAI) was pursuing the matter with the Defence Estate, New Delhi.

Mr. Kumar appealed to the Defence Minister to expedite transfer of defence land to Airports Authority of India to enable early completion of the project.

Mr. Kumar also presented another memorandum to the Defence Minister, appealing for transfer of defence land to the extent of 0.26855 hectares for reconstruction of a road overbridge near Tiruchi railway junction in lieu of the existing old bridge.

The memorandum said 85 per cent of reconstruction was completed except the approach ramp on the Chennai arm, which was pending for the last two years due to lack of ‘in-principle’ approval for transfer of the defence land.

While the Dindigul arm of the road over bridge was completed and opened for traffic, the Madurai arm would be opened in a few months. But the work on the Chennai arm was pending. Mr. Kumar said he had met the Defence Secretary and previous defence ministers for the last two years.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has proposed to construct a new apron at the international airport here amid steep rise in overseas passenger traffic movements.

Preliminary works connected with the proposed construction that would help in accommodating additional flights has already begun.


Ahead of the construction, soil investigation test which is in progress is expected to be completed soon.

The AAI has engaged a technical team from National Institute of Technology, Tiruchi, to conduct the soil investigation test at a cost of ₹12 lakh.

The proposed new apron would be bigger than the existing one, airport sources told The Hindu.

The sources said the new apron would be able to accommodate 10 aircraft at a time, while the existing apron accommodates seven aircraft.

The distance between the existing apron and the proposed new one would be about 180 metres.

The fast growing Tiruchi international airport witnesses over 100 international flight movements every week with introduction of services to different overseas destinations in the last few years.

International carriers operate twin-engine A-320 and Boeing 737 type flights at present, while smaller ATR-type flights are operated in the Tiruchi – Chennai – Tiruchi sector.

A senior official said soil investigation test was on the verge of completion adding that the task of conducting topographical survey would be entrusted with an eligible agency.

The corporate headquarters of the AAI has provided the designs and drawings for the new apron which would come up at a cost of around ₹90 crore, a senior official said.

There could be some revision in the design and estimate based on the soil investigation report, the official added.

The AAI has a composite plan to put in place, a new apron, parallel taxiway, connecting taxiway, taxi link and an isolation bay at the Tiruchi airport which handled over 13 lakh passengers during the 2016-17 financial year- majority of whom were international travellers.

The construction of a new apron was required in the wake of AAI clearance and sanction of funds for the construction of a new international passenger terminal building adjoining the existing one.

However, the two projects are to be done separately, said the sources.

Tenders for the construction of the new apron were expected to be floated next year and the project would be completed within one year from the time of date of award of the contract, the official said.

Sources said the AAI would spend over ₹750 crore alone for the construction of a two-level international passenger terminal building which would be five times the size of the existing structure.

Trichy airport expansion work picks up pace as land acquisition begins

Quote:
Revenue officials have commenced the process of acquiring private lands including residential areas for airport terminal building expansion work at Trichy International Airport

A team of officials surveyed and earmarked 42 houses out of 300 habitations.

Officials have been instructed by the district administration to complete the process before December 15, so that civil work could be started in March 2018.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has planned to expand the airport for which a new state-of-the-art two-level integrated terminal is going to be constructed at a cost of Rs 897 crore.

The new facility would have a basement with an airside corridor, approach road in such a way so that it can handle both international as well as domestic passengers and canopy for passenger facilitation.

In the meantime, land acquisition for airport runway expansion work was also getting apace.

Out of the required land of 683.32 acres to expand the existing runway length of 8,150sqft to 12,500sqft, administrative approval has been given only for 345.62 acres. This included 116 acres of fertile lands located at Kottapattu, Keelakuruchi, Keela Kalkandarkottai villages.

To execute the land acquisition, an 18-member special team headed by a tahsildar was formed three months back. The team has commenced its work and would be handing over the land to AAI soon.

Meanwhile, the special team headed by tahsildar Manikandan and other revenue staff visited the residential area of Bharathi Nagar and extension area of J K Nagar just opposite to the airport and conducted a survey to ascertain the total area, number of houses, how many are old and new and the value etc.

A total of 42 houses were earmarked on Thursday.

According to officials, a total of 300 habitations have been earmarked for the airport expansion work in Trichy East and Thiruverumbur area and they will be surveyed in the coming days.

Some of the residents have raised objections to the acquisition. So, they have been asked to air their objections within 30 days, an official said and added,

"We have been asked to complete the process before December 15. We are working accordingly."

Security stamping of hand baggage goes

Image



Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has dispensed with the practice of stamping hand baggage tags of international and domestic passengers departing from Tiruchi airport, as per a directive from the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, the regulatory authority for civil aviation security in the country.

The CISF that provides round-the-clock security and surveillance at the airport dispensed with this practice on a trial basis for a week from October 24 to 30 for domestic passengers. It was carried out to check how the system worked and a report was forwarded to the authority in New Delhi recently.

Security stamping of hand baggage tags provided by the respective airlines was done by the CISF personnel at the Security Hold Area.

The system was permanently withdrawn from Friday based on positive feedback from domestic passengers - that it was time saving, airport sources told The Hindu .

However, routine security procedures such as scanning of hand baggage of domestic and international passengers would continue at the Security Hold Area. This practice had already been withdrawn in other international airports in phases.

The fast growing non-metro Tiruchi airport has more international flights than domestic services. Five foreign carriers operate daily services to six overseas destinations located in South, South East and West Asia every day, while domestic flights are operated to Chennai.

Jet Airways and Alliance Air operate daily services in the Chennai-Tiruchi-Chennai sector.

The airport handled over 6.95 lakh international passengers during the first six months of the current financial year, according to Airports Authority of India statistics. Domestic passenger movement was a little over 60,000 during the same period.

AAI Cargo to invest outside India

The AAI Cargo Logistics and Allied Services Company, a subsidiary of AAI, is open to investments outside India.

“We will invest in other airports and facilities worldwide,” Keku Bomi Gazder, CEO, AAI Cargo Logistics and Allied Services Company, said.

The firm is working on investment possibilities in the country and abroad to provide cargo handling and allied services. “A five-year vision document with details of our verticals, a blueprint on how and where the company will go forward along with the quantum of investment and timeline is being worked on,” he said. The company plans to unveil international courier handling at Tiruchi and Thiruvananthapuram airports in the last quarter of this financial year. An international courier terminal is different from an international cargo terminal in terms of the size and contents of the consignments handled. The weight limit for courier/express material (individual packages) for exports and imports is fixed at 70 kg.

According Mr. Gazder, the company also plans to establish international cargo operations at five airports, including Madurai, Jaipur, Imphal and Vishakapatnam, in the coming years. AAICLAS already has 19 international cargo terminals and two international courier terminals operational in the country.

Residents oppose acquisition of land for airport expansion

Image



Residents of Pattathammal Street situated near the international airport here have stoutly opposed the acquisition of their lands by the revenue authorities for the airport expansion project on the grounds that it would severely affect their livelihood.

Several families situated in the street falling under the 37th ward publicly expressed their ire against the proposed move to acquire their lands by staging a ‘waiting agitation’ along the Tiruchi – Pudukottai National Highway near the airport all through the day on Monday.

The residents resorted to this step following failure of talks convened by the revenue authorities on Saturday to discuss about the acquisition of their land for the airport expansion project.

A section of residents who took part in the meeting which was also attended by officials from the Airports Authority of India and the City Police refused to accept the decision of the revenue authorities regarding land acquisition.

Several men, women and children totally numbering over 1,000, sat along the highway near the airport during the day-long agitation and made it clear that they would continue to stay put at the same place.

M. Vinayagamoorthy, an AIADMK member who has been residing in the street since his birth said the residents came to know about the move to acquire their lands for the airport expansion project only after issue of a notification in a vernacular daily a few months ago.

“Free house site pattas were issued to us as early as 1972 by the government and the families have been staying in that area for several years now”, he said.

The residents had met the District Collector and petitioned the Tiruchi Lok Sabha MP P. Kumar once the notification was issued, he further said.

“Majority of the residents belong to the Dalit community and are daily wage earners working in a nearby leather factory besides engaged in painting and other civil works,” said Vinayagamoorthy

Nearly 4,000 residents were currently staying in Pattathammal street and many of them had even registered their respective plot, said K. K. Ambikapathy another resident.

Residents said they would not compromise on their lands as it would also adversely affect the education of their wards. They also made it clear during the peace talks convened by the revenue authorities that they would not be in a position to live peacefully even if heavy amount were to be given as compensation to each one of them.

Mr. Vinayagamoorthy said during the talks it was informed to them by the revenue officials that the notification was issued only after the State government issued an order pertaining to land acquisition.

Revenue officials had also reportedly conveyed to the participants during the talks that steps would be taken to provide them higher compensation and that they should extend their full cooperation to the acquisition.

“However, we refused to accept the contention made by the revenue authorities”, said Vinayagamoorthy who was part of the team that went for the talks. The agitation concluded in the evening.
